Fresh Hope – Day 196

If I ate one kernel of corn it wouldn’t even register on my hunger scale. Within a few seconds, it would be gone and have no effect on me, but if I planted that one kernel instead, it would produce two whole corn on the cob.

Each corn on the cob contains roughly 452 kernels…that’s a 904 yield from just ONE tiny Kernel.

Let’s say that you get really inspired by this knowledge, so you decide to forego your appetite and you decide to eat just one whole corn on the cob and plant the other one.

That one whole cob is going to reap a harvest of 373,258 kernels!

If I decided to eat nothing and sow both cobs then I would reap 746,496 kernels.

You may feel that there is never a convenient time to sow but there is always a necessary time to sow, otherwise you will end with the grand total of nothing in the garden of your life.

Everything we need in life is found in seed form.

Love is a seed. Kindness is a seed. Money is a seed.

Instead of looking at your need, start to sow a seed in that area.

It’s the law of sowing and reaping and yet we ignore it or at least overlook it.

I’m sure that if vegetables had conferences, they would make fun of us humans for not trusting this principle.

Ecclesiastes 11:4-6 Whoever watches the wind will not plant; whoever looks at the clouds will not reap. As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb,so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things. Sow your seed in the morning, and at evening let your hands not be idle, for you do not know which will succeed, whether this or that, or whether both will do equally well.
